Do you ever wonder what objectives your company is actually pursuing and how your work contributes to achieving these objectives? Would you like to be transparently informed about company values, vision, and strategy so that you can work more effectively and purposefully? Do you desire more effective and clear communication within your team and between different departments? Then it's worth taking a look at the agile leadership and time management framework OKR. The O in OKR stands for Objectives, which are the objectives you identify for yourself, your team, or your company using the OKR method. Behind the K and the R lie the key results, crucial milestones necessary to achieve your objectives. Through the thoughtful and clear naming of objectives and key results, the OKR method creates a clear and transparent focus on what is most important at the moment, helping companies achieve specific objectives in a precise manner. Does that sound good? Then take a look at our e⁠-⁠training course.
